This time I was doing exams in Brig, Switzerland – few kilometers from the Italian border. It was a perfect 4-hrs train ride from Florence, with two nice colleagues Lorenza and Sara.
Exams in Brig is a “classic” – since 10 years I’ve been doing exams here at the Kollegium Spiritus Sanctus – every teacher’s dream school, a spacious, luminous, eco-building settled among the Swiss mountains.
Here we do mostly DELI exam, for more than hundred students.
Every year I have the occasion to work together with Swiss instructors of Italian, who are perfectly bilingual (this is an area where three languages, Swiss-german, Italian and French meet and mix).
The students are always well prepared, the director, Giuliano Andri, is always a perfect host, and to be here is almost a vacation !
